The Parakeet Girl by Marilyn Sadler
After trying out a dog, a cat and a goldfish, Emma Tuttle finds the perfect pet – a parakeet named Henry. Henry does everything with Emma until one day her brother brings home a parakeet of his own. Henry falls in love with the new bird – a budgie named Kate. Soon Henry abandons Emma to spend all his time with Kate. Is Emma doomed to live a lifetime of loneliness??
Cooper enjoyed this book. She thought it was very romantic and loved that there were two blue budgies in the story. She also liked that Henry holds the remote while watching television (the remote is one of Cooper’s favorite things).
Ha. Kristen had that book when she was little. I remember it wasn’t bad for kid’s book.
It was a pretty cute book for a child. It was an awesome book for a parakeet : ).
Judging by Cooper’s attachment to Dewey (and she’s not that fond of him), I’d bet on loneliness.
Cool snow effect. If I may ask, what is the html code for it? Thanks. Your site is one of the best budgie sites on the web definitely needs some more attention!
It’s the “Let it snow!” plugin for WordPress.
